On Tuesday, January 9, 2018, the Wireless Zone of Putnam presented Northeast Opportunities for Wellness, Inc. (NOW) with a donation of $266.66. The funds were generated from sales of Wireless Zone brand PopSockets at the Putnam store over the fall and winter months.
Wireless Zone Putnam store manager Josh Paul and assistant store manager Patrick Lynch were on hand to present the check to NOW president Allan Rawson. Paul commented, “Wireless Zone is happy to be able to raise money for a great, local organization that is dedicated to providing fitness and wellness opportunities to children in the community.”
This is not the first time Wireless Zone has provided support to NOW; in the fall of 2016 the Putnam, Killingly, and North Windham stores teamed up to donate $610 to NOW in response to money that had been stolen from a NOW fundraising event. As well, the Putnam Wireless Zone has donated various auction items and baskets used at NOW events.
NOW Executive Director Sarah Wolfburg expressed her appreciation for the continued support from Wireless Zone, “As a non-profit, the support we receive from the community is truly valued. It is encouraging to see businesses like the Putnam Wireless Zone donating funds, goods, and sharing their success with us.”
